Introducing Cardamom Rose - a design that's come out of the increasingly loud travel bug I've been nurturing this year.  A family trip is in the works, and all internet trolling seems to include yarn, doesn't it?  So, look what I found while "researching"....

A happy accident too, because I loved this yarn the moment I saw it online and it was even better in person. Reminiscent of the English countryside from whence it came, Eden Cottage Yarn's Langdale Aran is both delicate and hearty at the same time. Soft as can be - with a lovely roundness and spring to the fabric that's just perfect in a cowl.

This pale pink shade (Driftwood) was sketched out to be delicate lace, but the geometric texture was so crisp and distinct in the fiber, and once I spent a few rounds working the simple lace repeat, I was hooked. (Perhaps that’s just an excuse to make another design down the road…?)

It's a great, easy knit with some quick, satisfying results! And a good excuse to try a yarn from afar.
Victoria is in the process of adding a whole selection of new yarn to her shop, and will be ready on Sunday 11/30 with an amazing selection of colors and yarns for you to check out.

The pattern is for sale in the patterns section of the blog or on Ravelry for $5, and all the info is on the Ravelry page, here....

And there's limited-time fun things for you, too: 

We’ve included a code in the the Cardamom Rose PDF for free international shipping from ECY with the purchase of at least 3 skeins of the Aran, valid from 11/30 to 12/7 - so you can take advantage of the shop update, no matter where you live!

Plus, from now until 12/7, if you purchase Cardamom Rose, you can also get any of my hat patterns for 25% off - cause I also think hats are a great way to try out new stuff… Code for that is Hatsandacowl.

Thanks for a beautiful pattern - Cardamon Rose. I've already purchased it, but was wondering if you used the Langsdale Aran or the Langsdale Aran Superwash? I'm looking forward to ordering the yarn when she gets her new yarns uploaded.

I used the regular Langdale Aran :)
